Health Law & Policy Institute

Bates Law Building


For four decades, the Health Law & Policy Institute (HLPI) at the University of Houston Law Center (UHLC) has been at the forefront of legal education, scholarship and policy analysis related to health care and biotechnology. In October 2009, the University became a member institution of the famed Texas Medical Center, solidifying HLPI's link to the world's largest medical complex. Formed in 1978 to advise the Texas Legislature on health law and policy issues, HLPI has built a diverse portfolio of research on a variety of topics, including health finance systems; disability law; health information exchange; genetic data; health care quality and access improvement; integrated provider organizations and questions of individual rights in health care; and biomedical research. 

Our mission is threefold:

  • Education: to provide one of the nation's most rigorous, comprehensive and cutting-edge programs in health law at the basic (J.D.) and advanced (LL.M.) levels with the goal of preparing students for careers in health law practice or in scholarly or policy-oriented positions
  • Research: to facilitate independent and grant-funded research and to cultivate the next generation of health law scholars by providing mentoring and support to our students  
  • Service: to share our knowledge through public commentary and engagement and to advise the Texas Legislature and state regulatory agencies on matters involving health care and public health

Please help invest in our mission by making a charitable gift today to support education, research, and service and other top funding priorities in Health Law with the University of Houston Law Center today.
